New to Central, Skokie, Church, and/or Christianity?

You are welcome to Skokie Central United Methodist Church! Come and join us any Sunday morning at 8:00 am or 10:30 am for an open, welcoming worship service. A comfortable sanctuary where you can see Pastor Timothy Biel Jr. and listen to his insightful, relevant sermons. Meet friendly people and sample some of what Skokie Central UMC has to share:

  • 8:00 am RISE@Central Service.
    Are you looking for a deeper connectio with Jesus? Would you like to explore Christian discipleship in a new engaging way? Then think about worshipping at our 8 am RISE@Central Service. RISE@Central is a 35-40 minute contemporary format service that actively engages allage groups. Sing along to new and favorite K-LOVE or Air1 hits, while growing in your faith.

  • The 10:30 am Classic Service features music from the Chancel Choir led and accompanied by Millete Silverio, various other musicians, song leaders, special guests and an enthusiastic congregation. At Skokie Central UMC, we feel our congregational voice – in prayer, in song, in praise – is important, strong and vibrant.

  • Holy Communion served weekly. With Skokie’s wonderfully diverse community, Communion crosses all cultural barriers since all are welcome at Skokie Central UMC's Communion table.

When you’re ready, we look forward to getting to know you! If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact one of our friendly church administrators Doris Bloom, Pam Castaneda or Kathy Tiffin at 847-673-1311 or centralchurch@skokiecentralumc.org.
